RAVER GIRLS
London: “HEY CRAZY,” read the massive sign posted at the entrance to Louise Gray’s runway. Though many of her London counterparts have gone for a more subdued look this season, it was clear that Louise Gray would stick with her signature brand of free-spiritedness and fun. The collection, based on old-school ravers, featured the popping tones and eye-catching graphics for which she is known. The A-line dresses and skirts often featured more than one geometric pattern. Highlights included white button-up shirts with techy black graphics and color blocked mohair sweaters. A quilted silver foil skirt will appeal to Gray’s ex-raver fans. Tin foil jewelry, paper clip necklaces, and tissue paper headpieces had a DIY feeling that complemented the rave references. –Joanna Manganaro
